The Bankers Reserve Life
Last week The independent pub
lished the annual financial statemen
of the Bankers Reserve Life, Omaha;
Cpage '6)., .; Doubtless the formidable
array of figures prevented some of our
readers from giving the statement the
attention it justly deserves for many
persons have a horror of figures. Al
though only three years old, the Bank
ers Reserve Life, harrassed on every
hand by the old-line trust, and given
no very -warm welcome by the Ne
braska insurance department, had in
force on the last day of December,
1902, over five million dollars of in
surance ($5,234,500) ; during the year
1902 It wrote over two and a quarter
millions ($2,332,750); and after de
ducting the policies that had lapsed
(something inevitable in any com
pany, -and to be counted on with al
most the same degree of accuracy as.
the death rate) it made a net gain of
$1,813,000 in the amount of insurance
in force.. ' :
The Bankers Reserve Life has $50,-,
S50 of gilt-edged bonds and mortgages
deposited with the state auditor. Dur
ing the year it paid $8,500 of death
claims and has none unpaid or in
course of litigation. Its income in
premiums for the year was $179,509.14.
In addition to a promition fund of ten
thousand dollars it has a surplus over
and above liabilities amounting to
B. II. Robisoti, the genial, hard
working president of this concern, is
to be congratulated for the abundant
success which has crowned his ef
forts. In no small degree is this to
be attributed to his bright, persistent,
intelligent advertising, with which In
dependent readers are so familiar.
The Poor Old Vag
The fright was cold and he was old;
His back was bent and money spent:
Dressed, too. in rags, like other vags,
He'd walked the street with naught
For two long days, he tramped the
In need of bread, yet still unfed.
Hunger increased, though hope had
ceased ' '
Famished and weak, ' he Still Was
As night grew dark, he sought, the
The somber shade the pine trees mads.
Seemed kinder then, than haunts of
Or rock-pile feed, or chain-gang creed..
Paid by the town, a cop came down
And spied the vag, like hunted stag.
The tramp he sought, he roughly
And being stout, he yanked him out!
Next day in court he made report:
'This drunke vag with heavy jag
This son of su, I run him in
By club and nerve which ever serve.
To guard the weak and vengeance
On tramping vags who take their jag.?,
Where young sports wend to meet a
Or nurse-maids go to find a beau!"
The poor old vag look ed at the flag
In vain the plea! The court's decree
No misery knows, nor mercy shows.
Up, he was sent and all' it meant
For sixty days the chain-gang
Yet pardon came, in death's dread
